I grew up in Richmond, VA, and completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Mary Washington. I then worked as a medical scribe in emergency medicine and in several outpatient settings before moving to Blacksburg, VA, to attend medical school at the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM). I originally intended to go into emergency medicine, but I learned through my experiences during rotations that I wanted a specialty that allowed me to build lasting relationships with my patients while still affording me a full scope of practice and plentiful procedures. I became particularly passionate about working in underserved communities, both local and global, during medical school and this also drove me to seek out a program that would allow me to practice a full scope of family medicine.
I felt immediately at home during my interview at Franklin Square and I am beyond thrilled to be completing my family medicine residency with the amazing team here. I was particularly drawn to the high pediatric volume in clinic and the opportunity to undergo training regarding refugee medicine in DC.
Outside of medicine, I love anything outdoors–kayaking, hiking, and camping are some of my favorite activities. I am excited to be moving to a city on the water as a lifelong dream of mine has been to learn how to sail, and I am hoping to get that opportunity in Baltimore! I also enjoy playing pool and exploring local craft breweries. I am very excited to explore Baltimore over the next few years!
